JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A member of the Jackson Police Department's top brass has been demoted.
Sources say Deputy Chief Ron Sampson has been reassigned to other duties, but those duties have not been released.
It is also not clear why Sampson was demoted.
When contacted, Sheriff-Chief Malcolm McMillin said, "It is a personnel matter and I won't discuss it."
This is not the first time Sampson has been demoted.
Last February, he was reassigned after two female officers, Amy Barlow and Wanda Camel, filed a lawsuit against him and the department claiming he used racial slurs and sexually harrassed Officer Camel.
Sheriff-Chief McMillin later restored Sampson to deputy chief.
The reassignment order is expected to go into effect tomorrow.
Sampson is a longtime member of the Jackson Police Department who got his start in law enforcement as a jailer.
